northward up the east coast. category 4 hurricane, matthew moved across western areas of haiti. tracking across eastern parts of cuba in the afternoon and evening. from there, the hurricane center forecast pretty straightforward for the next two days. it goes up through the bahamas and stations itself just off the east coast of florida. most of the maps agree on that. how close to the east coast or southern new england, and what the strength of it will be, how long it will go overland, will dictate a lot of what the strength of the system will be. as it continues to weekend, the fairly concentrated win and rain starts to unravel a little bit.

of a quick 12-18 hours of rainfall. notice in the tracks, there is a general consensus of what you saw on the insurgency and this gives us the potential for some rain and a lot of that, the timing of which is concentrated on very late saturday night and into sunday before pulling away sunday evening. that would be the question mark on the forecast, when matthew does or doesn't do across new england. temperatures built through friday and a nice start to the holiday weekend with a chance of rain and wind on sunday. advises come in about every three hours and the latest track every six hours. let's go to "grow it green." ray: welcome to "grow it green." i'm joined by margaret hagen from unh cooperative extension. this has been kind of a rough

12:22 pm
you definitely don't want to cut anything down this year. you never know if it will come back or not. ray: what if i usually fertilize in the fall? do i want to do that? margaret: not this year. it will just be an additional stressor on the treatment what you can do is use things like weaving houses, possibly on a timer, or this rose. the roots of the leaf tips. cover as much of the space as possible so if we do get rain, use a sprinkler and run it until you get about it and just wonder. -- inch of water. ray: normally in television when somebody leaves they are there one day and gone, but this is not normal. robert hagan has been bringing us information for -- margaret hagen has been bringing us information for i want say how
